Think guarded optimism…
Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel, the Franchise, and all pro wide receiver Dwayne Bowe have given the team a real shot at winning the AFC West. Despite virtually everyone picking San Diego. In fact most pun dents still feel the Chargers have a shot at the Super Bowl. NFL anchor Terry Bradshaw even named the Chargers Phillip Rivers as the "number one quarterback in the NFL under 30."
In fact Bradshaw’s Top 10 list did not even include Franchise Matt Cassel, who may be an All Pro this year.
Cassel now – without question or any doubt – is the Chiefs best quarterback since Len Dawson.
As this humble scribe wrote seven weeks back, "Matt is the Franchise." End of story to those who say, "What does Glazer know?"
Trust me, I know.
Allow me to be even more humble…
D Bowe – for sure an All Pro this year with every receiving record a Chiefs wide out can have – benefited from my post about cooling it with the green and other things.
He has done just that. Cassel to Bowe is now like Montana to Rice. In fact the Randy Moss record of 23 touchdowns is within Bowe’s reach.
But lets not get too excited just yet.
The Chargers overall are much better than the Chiefs. They have a better defense while ours is still below average. And many more go-to receivers. We have one. And maybe a half with our tight end at times. Our running game is better. So it’s up in the air.
But we have a bright future.
Todd Haley has done a nice job. Thank you, Todd.
